The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story

Documentary


 

The story of Lou Pearlman, the man who discovered the Backstreet Boys and N*SYNC and also created a Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors of more than $300 million.

You've probably never watched anything quite like "The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story". This documentary starts off as a trip down memory lane for current and former boy band members; a recounting of how their careers nearly didn't happen (or completely flopped) due to their unscrupulous manager. As it delves further into our villain's business dealings, it's horrifying to learn about the depths of his greed and deception and how many people he managed to rip-off along the way. Larger than life.
